Ellina kumari was born at 00.01 weighing 6lbs and 8ozs
Britain’s first baby of 2017 was born at 00.01 – just a minute into the New Year.
Bharti Devi, 35, gave birth to bouncing baby girl Ellina Kumari just seconds after Big Ben stopped chiming.
The mum-of-two arrived at City Hospital in Birmingham on Saturday and was induced later in the evening.
Baby Ellina, who weighed a healthy 6lbs 8ozs, is now being looked after by excited midwives alongside her proud parents.
